Actor and huge Falcons fan Samuel L. Jackson durring the ESPYS, on Wednesday night, had to announce the winner of Best Team. On his regret one of the nominees was the New England Patriots.
Apparently, Jackson is still sad about his team’s painful Super Bowl loss to the Pats (though I’m sure the jokes host Peyton Manning made about that loss at the start of the show also didn’t help) because as he was opening up the envelope, he said:
“And the ESPY goes to … please don’t let it be them, don’t let it be them. Don’t. Let. It. Be. Them … It’s not them! The Golden State Warriors!”
Samuel L. Jackson's really happy the Pats didn't win the Best Team ESPY. pic.twitter.com/KeKJ073Zz6
